Rita Dawson began volunteering as a spokesperson in 2008. Rita has volunteered at the Kansas State Fair, the National Festival of Breads and has facilitated bread programs at two schools in her local county to promote the use of wheat flour. She enjoys being a spokesperson because of the opportunity she has to meet new people and work with other spokespersons. In her free time, Rita enjoys working with youth of any age in afterschool programs and preschool programming. She also enjoys cooking, especially baking bread. Rita resides in East Central Kansas.
